    Crossroads Psychological Associates
    Dr.Gaeng has been very welcoming from the first initial phone call to each visit. Things are being put into perspective more and more after each visit. Mental health isn't easy- it's not cookie cutter for everyone, and unfortunately there are a lot of bad doctors out there. Dr. Gaeng is not like that. The only downfall is not taking insurance, but we knew that going in. They help with the submittal process for your insurance company which is half the battle. Overall, we are very happy with Dr. Gaeng and his bedside manner.

    Dr. Victor Ferrans, MD
    Dr. Ferrans had me on a drug for 12 years and now he says I need to get off the drug.  I understand it is my fault I need to come off the drug because I did not take it as prescribed.  Dr. Ferrans said that to properly come off the drug I would need to be weaned off.  However, Dr. Ferrans has only given enough of a prescription for one week and told me to figure out the rest.  So essentially I have to immediately find another medical professional to help me properly wean off the drug or I will become tremendously sick.  I won’t die but there is no way I can tell my employer that I need to suddenly take two weeks off of work to go through withdrawal.  In effect, Dr. Ferrans left me hanging.  There is a correct way and a wrong way to do things.  I feel Dr. Ferrans took the absolute wrong way to handle this situation. Two wrongs certainly don't make a right.

    Dr. Tucker is great. She is nice and seems to know what she's doing. And I rarely wait more than 1 minute for her (seriously, she's that quick... no wait). The issue I have is with the front staff. They're lazy and incompetent. You CANNOT call them for any reason, including making an appointment. They will not answer, ever. I've been seeing Dr. Tucker for a year or so, and I've gotten a hold of the front desk staff once on a first attempt. I always have to dial Dr. Tuckers direct line to tell her I can't get an appointment made. The front desk staff also never returns messages. Not one have they ever returned my message for an appointment or urgent messages about meds. The last time I ran out, I called 4 days in a row and left 4 messages saying I could have a seizure without my meds... never got a call back. I wish Dr. Tucker wasn't with this office.

    Psych Associates Care
    Could this have been any worse of any experience?! Dr. Peter J. Coleman saw our son a total of maybe 2-3 times. His assessment at the end of the time was that he was suffering from separation anxiety and had failed to attach to me, his mother. He would suffer with this for the rest of his life but this is the unfortunate consequence of my postpartum depression. I felt awful. And then he recommended he meet with our son weekly for sessions -- which we did not do and I'm glad we didn't.
    My husband and I were concerned the first time he took our son into his office, closed the door (a double door -- for sound proofing) and then locked it. We were surprised since we thought that first visit he would be meeting first with us. He didn't explain what he would be doing. It was a very bad experience. But by far the most upsetting thing was to have him place so much blame on me without knowing more about our situation. And even if I was/am to blame, stating it in this way is NOT helpful to me or to the child.
    We got help through a neuropsychologist who specializes working with children with epilepsy and she gave us a much more informed sort of "diagnosis" and with the right extra reading help at school (now in public school with an IEP), our son is well-liked at school. I have NEVER been called by the school in the past 2 years for a behavioral problem -- whereas at the private school, I got called almost every day. I would NEVER recommend Dr. Coleman to anyone for any reason.

    Lance Clawson MD
    Dr. Clawson has seen me and my family for a number of years. He has helped me tremendously. He has excellent knowledge of medication, what will help and what is better left behind. He listens and makes suggestions to help you get where you want to go. He treats his patients with respect; he is friendly and approachable.

    Codori, Dr. Ann-Marie
    Really well! My husband and I were newlywed s, and needed help with some communication issues. Dr. Cordori was fair, calm and expert in assessing the issues we each had, and making us feel extremely comfortable in talking about them. She gave us new skills and ways to talk to each other to deepen our relationship, trust and enjoy each other more.

    Sharon Bisco MD
    Dr. Bisco has a direct, yet patient and gentle, manner about her and has made my husband feel very comfortable and cared for while dealing with a delicate situation. He trusts her and depends on her to give him guidance. Her initial medication recommendation was spot on and we have just needed time to find the correct dosage. I would recommend her to anyone needing a psychiatrist.

    It took a while for me to get an initial appointment, and once I did it, the date was far out. Also, the office was difficult to find once I got to the building. Once inside the office, I was not immediately acknowledged. Once I was finally acknowledged, the staff at the front desk seemed friendly. Although I arrived an half hour early and no one else was waiting ahead of me, I was seen about fifteen minutes after my appointment was supposed to start. When the doctor finally saw me, she was very short with me. She made me feel insignificant, like she had better things to do, and when I was trying to explain my symptoms and situation, (including memory issues), she didn't seem to believe me. It was very discouraging and disheartening. After the appointment, the front desk (whose appointment system seemed disorganized) set up an initial appointment for me with a therapist under the same practice. I was told my appointment was scheduled for the second Wednesday in February. I asked her what the date was, and she said it was either going to be on the 12th or the 13th. I wasn't given an appointment card, but I saved on my calendar - Wednesday the 13th. I never got a call to remind me or to confirm that I was coming like I would anywhere else, so I called around 11am Tuesday, the 12th, to make sure my appointment was still on. When I called, they told me that my appointment was supposed to be for 10am on the 12th, that I was flagged as a no-show, that they would not reschedule me, and that I would be charged the full amount for not showing up. I tried to make it right, but there was no comprise with them. I still don't understand it, and now I have to pay for an appointment that I never had.

    I arrived on time for my 8:15am appointment with Dr. Barahona and waited. And waited. And waited.  Another patient and I started talking about the punctuality(or lack of) then I inquired as to whether the Dr was even there yet because there is no reason to be so behind on appointments when the 1st appointment of the day is at 8:15.  Well, she was not there yet and I waited until 9:15 and she never showed.  Apparently her last day was the upcoming Friday and she felt she no longer needed to show up.  I rescheduled with a new Dr for 5/1/13 and waited 45 minutes then he asked if I could wait another 30mins because he was double booked.  I said no and made him take me.  Very unorganized, but unfortunately they are close and covered my insurance so I am stuck there until I can find something better.  That said, the staff are nice.  The Drs schedules are just poorly organized

    Barta, Dr. Patrick E
    I usually show up only a few minutes before my scheduled appointment, which I generally make 3 months in advance at the end of the previous appointment.  I generally see Dr. Barta within 5 minutes of my scheduled appointment and always finish on time.  Occasionally I have had issues between appointments and Dr Barta will e-mail or call depending on the situation.  
    The only downfall to Dr. Barta is that he does not accept insurance.  My opinion is that he more than makes up for this in his professionalism and knowledge.  I've seen a few other providers in the past, all of which were terrible, and one borderline should be de certified.  Add too those poor Dr's the insurance labyrinth and compare to Dr. Barta and his non insurance policy and Dr. Barta will come out as the better option every time.
